The law gives a specific priority for paying bills when there is not enough money in an estate to go around. Not all bills fall in the same category. If the estate doesn't have sufficient money, it should wait for the time frame when creditors can come forward to pass before paying.

While I hope this general legal information helps, it doesn't provide legal advice on the specifics of your situation. You may want to meet with an attorney to get personal advice.
